Favourite things of this week:
Starting my new job which is essentially having a lot of fun creating a social media plan from scratch and teaching English to people in businesses throughout Prague
Creating a very educational yet humorous lesson plan about Oklahoma in light of the fact that Oklahoma is considered very ‘exotic’ here. Yep, you read that correctly: exotic. Pictured below is my office space which is shared with other entrepreneurs at a Hub Space in Prague. Free coffee and natural lighting – love it.
Being stopped near my tram stop by a Korean girl who is making a short film about love. She is playing the ‘God’ character. When she asked me where I was from, I told her ‘America.’ Five minutes later, she told me how good my English pronunciation was… and told me again … five more times. Am I missing something?
Having dinner with new American friends and exchanging fun/hilarious travel stories and crazy predicaments we find ourselves in. #travellove
Having a date night with Shawn (the boy I keep mentioning, I have now revealed his name) via Skype – we watch movies and he shares his screen with me. I know, right? #nerdlove
Going to my first Czech zumba class near where I live – so thankful that understanding the language is not needed for one of the many things I love to do.
Meeting a new young family at the International Church of Prague who just decided to move here from South Carolina. They are travel bloggers – how do people do that for a living!? If I find out, I will definitely share it with you.
Volunteering at an anti human trafficking awareness screening last Monday at the School of Medicine – we screened the documentary Nefarious and then discussed the current situation in Prague. Twenty students came, including three guys from Germany. Amazing to see all of their mindsets and outlooks change after becoming aware of the reality and how it actually happens (read more about it here).
Celebrating my nephew’s 14th birthday in true Prague spirit – what a fine young man he is turning out to be! But no surprise there. He is already one of the best kids I know (purely factual). Crossing my fingers he will come visit one day.
Taking photos on the coldest day yet near the river. The swans didn’t seem to mind at all. These were taken on my walk to work. Yes, it’s true… I live in a painting. A very beautiful and ‘I cannot believe I live here’ painting.
